“I understand your reluctance in this matter. Just think of it as a favor to me,” Han Xiuzhi announced when he noticed his grandson’s hesitation. Even though he was overjoyed with Han Jingru agreeing to it, a pang of guilt hit him. If it weren’t for me, he wouldn’t have thought about doing this.
Han Jingru shook his head as he chose to refrain from saying anything more.
“I’m not trying to justify her actions. I’m just saying that she’s a victim in this matter too. She was married to me as a pawn of her family.

Choosing the wrong person?
Han Jingru found his grandfather’s remarks amusing. However, he did not refute them. Han Jingru would never say no to his grandfather’s request.
